Man Fatally Stabbed Near Elk Grove WinCo
The Elk Grove Police Department announced the arrest of 31-year-old Aaron Spencer Monday, after surveillance footage showed him stabbing a man and leaving him dead at a bus stop on Sheldon Road Sunday evening.
The footage showed Spencer approaching the victim who is seen laying down on the grass near the bus stop. For reasons unknown, Spencer becomes irate and proceeds to stab the victim several times in the torso. He then fled the scene on foot before police were called on the scene.
